We waited half an hour just to get a parmesan fondue for €14 which winded up being two small mashed potatoe dumplings and a €16 fish and chips which had just one fish. I felt personally robbed and won't come back.

Visited on a fairly quiet Sunday lunchtime. Burger was really tasty with attention to detail, beer was good (obviously, it's Belgium!) restaurant a bit dated and toilets not very nice. Service was good. Quite expensive but normal for the area.
